Students in southern Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut can now take advantage of a number of art and design courses from Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education (RISD|CE) that, until now, required commuting to its Providence campus. A select group of RISD|CE courses are now offered at the Westerly Education Center, giving students the opportunity to work with distinguished instructors in a range of visual arts and design disciplines. RISD|CE continues its Westerly courses with 10 evening and weekend courses scheduled for Fall 2017.

RISD|CE course offerings in Westerly span a variety of creative choices in artistic mediums, but all focus on developing the key building blocks to establish a working knowledge of spatial organization and visual problem solving to further your abilities as an artist.
